, the news continues with don lemon in columbus, ohio, battleground stat state. >>> thank you very much, fredricka, i'm don lemon. good evening, everyone, from the beautiful boat house restaurant in downtown columbus, ohio, we're coming to you tonight from a critical swing state, a state, quite frankly, with the luxury to call itself the swing state. a state in our minds and hearts that can only call itself devastated, places like jersey and new york. for almost a week now, we have been watching people literally fight for their lives. >> we are going to die. you don't understand, you got to get your trucks here on this corner. >> nearly 3 million people, still without power in 15 states. 106 people are dead now, and leaders say they could find more bodies underneath the rubble or washing to shore. now, that is a background, but with no gas and water in some places and with food and shelter in short supply in many places, where would politics? specifically voting, be on your list of priorities? it is not very high, even for the governor of new jersey. >> i have the job here in new jersey
edition of "your money." i'm coming you to live from columb columbus, ohio. in three days, this is the state that will likely decide the presidential election. governor romney knows that only too well that no republican has won the white house without winning ohio and the race right now in ohio is close to a dead heat. let's look at the two latest polls. first, our own cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three point lead. now that is inside the statistical margin of error. so that's about as close as it can get. and nbc "wall street journal" poll gives the president a six point lead in ohio. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been travelin

. and it was in 2004, i remember i was in columbus, ohio in 2004. and, you know, i guess i'd have to predict that the president will win it for the very reasons amy was saying. gwen: ooh, ooh. that's scary. you made a prediction. i've got it on tape. i can roll it back. i wonder if it plays into that demographic divide. is it the example of what we're talking about? >> well, it's actually different -- >> why? >> well, the white vote falls differently in the state of ohio than it does in other places. blue collar whites -- >> the auto bailout. >> the auto bailout, the fact that mitt romney opposed to auto bailout and also his characteristics as a very wealthy financial executive who has been pounded by democratic adds in a concentrated way, that sort of changed the chemistry of that state which the presidents have never won the presidency without winning. ohio will be the decisive state. if president obama wins florida, it moves the -- >> i could see florida being -- >> what i heard democrats talk about if they can hold ohio, hold wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, hold nevada, they could los

(cheers and applause) these ohio political ads zap your youth, they drain your vigor. out of the same hole they used to zap your youth. the cloaca i think it's called. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. (laughter) >> jon: sold chrysler to italians what, we're afraid of italians now? >> if obama wins, it will be the pope deciding what you drive. (laughter) one day they're ruining our car companies, the next day they'll be kissing our daughters with t
reasons. number one, secretary of state john houston in columbus would tell you that there is 220,000 fewer he democratic votes in early voting and 30,000 more republican votes. that means there is a 250,000 vote flip which is the margin by which obama won ohio in 2008. secondly, ohio is a republican state. 20 of the last 24 years we had republican governors. the legislature is overwhelmingly republican. every elected member of the supreme court of ohio is republican. 75% of elected officials in 88 counties are republicans. and thirdly, by independent voting measures, 10% to 15% of independent voters in ohio are going to vote for mitt romney. and also the catholic church when i go to saint sin vent in kenwood in since is national the minister is telling us vote for religious freedom. vote for the biblical definition of marriage. vote for life. there is half a million catholics energized in south, ohio, to pull the lever for mitt romney. mitt romney will win, ohio, and is going to win ohio easily. >> sean: wisconsin? >> wisconsin will go for romney because what walker did and what
by vitac -- www.vitac.com >> alp >> all righ>> all i'n columbus ohio at the boathouse restaurant. we're in a state that holds 18 electoral votes. i want you to look at this. it is cnn's most up-to-date polls. 50% for the president. 47% for republican mitt romney. but, with the sampling error, it is a dead heat. now, look at this coverage. three days to go and cnn has a battleground state covered like no other news network. all over nevada, wisconsin and here in ohio. all across this country, i'm going to take you on the road with both campaigns in just a minute. first, we have a very interesting election day from the state of new jersey that they tell you about now. it involves you of victims of super storm, sandy who cannot return home or have no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn
of the state and blue, and solid republican parts and read. about that columbus area. guest: columbus the state capital is where the ohio state is, that has become the key swing area of the state. it is growing. it has younger voters. it is a fluent. it is in an area that the previous bush's had one. but president obama made it flipped and took it by several percentage points. i think you are seeing a lot of attention in going there. this weekend, president obama will be finishing topping off his ohio campaigning in central ohio. in the past tv of cycles, we have seen the democratic candidate come up in northeast ohio and try to make that pushed. i think he is comfortable with the get out to vote efforts. he ought to go down -- he has to appeal to the swing areas. more independent voters. and you had this educated, affluent group, the base around ohio state university. and that has been critical. in the end, if you show that map, ohio is broken up, we have said it for years into 5 ohios. those five areas, plus some of the border areas, we have about seven media markets. it makes a very expensiv
in the mythical stories that we tell ourselves. they are myths that begin with in 1492, columbus sailed the ocean blue and tell how the pilgrims and indians gave thanks for a bountiful harvest over a turkey dinner but none of the lessons prepare students to deal with the duty which they will be charged with as american adults, how to become responsible citizens. joining my panel is seth andrew, founder and superintendent of democracy prep, public schools. i want to move our conversation a little bit. this close to the election, what i want to talk about as a teacher is not just what's going to happen in this election but what's going to happen going forward. when i was looking at these tests of national civic knowledge, i was completely freaked out. may of 2011, fewer than 5% are demonstrating advanced levels of knowledge. what kind of social studies are we teaching? >> we have a crisis when we think of the actual knowledge of our o our electorate. we have kids that get out of school and they can't determine truth from lies. we have to rethink civic education in america in a dramatic way. we thin
% of the vote. cleveland, columbus, here in cincinnati. a growing latino population. the president starts with a head start. the white vote, 44% to 53% for romney. i would say this. if governor romney can keep the white vote closer to 40%, he has a chance and getting minority turnout, that was the president's recipe for success four years ago. >> i know that is so crucial when you look at ohio, what do you see there? >> the reason, it has -- you look at a couple of different places. the north of the state. cleveland, over to toledo. a place where we think we see evidence the auto bailout is helping. across the industrial north. that means a lot of blew collar white voters supporting the president. then you come here to the southwest corner of the state. cincinnati is in hamilton county. it was blue four years ago. the state including cincinnati, 52% for the republican ticket, 47% for president obama. mitt romney -- it's a classic swing state, both campaigns essentially getting what they need where they need it. who can turn out the vote. >> and turn out the vote comes down to the ground g
of their efforts down in columbus, with live music and all the trimmings. yes, they're never going to come and visit us again when this is all over. >> jennifer: i don't know about ever, you guys are the bell of the ball. you have to be glowing in all of this attention. obviously another thing that is not getting much attention but you know, we have been focused on super storm sandy causing damage obviously on the eastern seaboard but i'm told it also caused damage in the ohio. what is the assessment of the damage there? >> the electricity is still out in pockets of northern ohio, the cleveland area. i was checking earlier and there are 40,000 to 50,000 homes. my power just went on last night. and the cleveland proper still doesn't have lights. they're hoping to have all this resolved on monday. but there is concern about polling stations on tuesday. >> jennifer: hopefully everybody is up on tuesday. i'm sure the campaigns are looking at that, but i'm sure people are too given how much attention ohio has had in this election. there has been this early voting surge for. president obama has

. joining us today. welcome to have you here today. >> great to be with you from columbus, ohio. i know you have a big show out of ohio . so many believe that the fate of president obama and mitt romney hinges on that state . what are you hearing about the mood of the electorate. >> i think in the south it is tight as a tick on a dog which means it is very, very razor close. i do sense there is eye -- an momentum for mitt romney. there is energy on the part of the romney voters and you can see it when the crowds and voters and i don't see that barack obama. he his the union voterss and younger voters. but i don't see the enthusiasm and nothing like what that sort of the remarkable energy four years ago for him. >> the polls continuing and showing a tight race. and at this point, we are not seeing the president at 50 percent and when an uncumbent is not at 50 independents usually break away from the challenger in the final days of the campaign. >> that's the conventional wisdom in politicings. undecided voters break for the challenger because they know who the incumbent is. my goodness. they
u.s. formally adopted the policy in 1966. isn't this a beautiful shot? downtown columbus. i'd like to thank our host here at the boat house. we'll be back in an hour by the way. "the situation room" begins right now. >>> thanks very much. you're in "the situation room." happening now, countdown to election night. this hour we'll hear from both candidates live. also, huge turnout for the final day of early voting. reports of lines up to four hours long in some places. and as life begins to return to normal in manhattan, new pleas for help from another hard-hit new york city borough. we're talking about queens. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." we're now just three days from the presidential election and the race for the white house is reaching a fever pitch. both campaigns are making a final push for the candidates. their wives, the former president bill clinton, the house speaker john boehner all campaigning down to the wire. cnn is covering their every move. our correspondents are in key locations in critical states. any one of which could ultimately decide who wil
from texas today. she's out on the campaign trail in columbus, ohio. good to see you as well, congresswoman. >> fredricka, good to be with you this afternoon. >> excellent. let's begin. we're talking about these candidates, president obama, mitt romney, they are crisscrossing these battleground states. let me begin with you, congressman price. you heard kyung talking about colorado being so vital. it was obama country during the last election, but with the one third independent voters made up much of suburban moms, is this a strategy that romney is going to be spending more time there later on today. how focused is he on colorado and trying to sway perhaps those one third independent voters? >> that's colorado and it's wisconsin and it's ohio and pennsylvania and all of the other states that are still in play. and the independent voters are indeed absolutely pivotal. each candidate want to make sure they get out their base, their base voters. when we look at the independent votes which is why we believe so strongly that governor romney will be the next president, we see high
into the poll, they're tied among independents. the president is doing very well in cleveland and columbus, where he has to do well. governor romney's doing pretty well down here in the southwest corner of the state where i am and in the rural areas. where he needs to do well. both candidates are doing well where they need to do well. now they're just trying to turn up the energy and turn up the intensity which is why they're both here in the state today. they will both be back in the state today. if you look deep into our poll, you have a classic dead heat in the classic swing state. >> david, you were saying a couple days ago you thought the president was an odds-on favorite to win. do you still feel that way? >> i do, anderson. i think his turnout operation is better in some of these states than mitt romney's but if you look at the overall battleground states now, look at the top ten battleground states, the polls show or the average of polls show that the president is clinging to a small lead in eight out of the ten battleground states. mitt romney is only ahead in two. that would put
)" >> brown: the president made three stops in the buckeye state, starting in hilliard, just outside columbus. >> in 2008, we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. and today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. and this morning, we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. ( applause ) >> brown: and the trend line seemed promising, as well. since july, the economy has added an average of 173,000 jobs per month, up from just 67,000 a month in the spring. at the same time, though, the unemployment rate ticked up a tenth of a point in october to 7.9% as more people began looking for work again. in west allis, wisconsin, the president's republican challenger, mitt romney, focused on that number, insisting again, "we can do better." >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now, and today we learn it's actually 7.9%, and that's nine million jobs short of whahe promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took offi
of a struggle. susan, thank you very much indeed. >>> joining me now from columbus, ohio, is general wesley clark, an obama supporter, former nato supreme allied commander. general, welcome back. >> thank you, piers. >> all the action now is heading to ohio. almost everyone who is anyone is down there, including your good self. the polls are very, very tight, showing very marginal lead for the president in most of the ones i've seen but with the margin of difference, you could almost say it's a tie. how are you seeing it down there on the ground? >> well, there's a lot of emotion, there's just thousands of volunteers out here. there's a ground game. we feel very good about the ground game, by the way. our volunteers are charged up. we've been working this for three and a half years. we knew it would come down to this. we were prepared for it. and we've fought to keep the polls open and make the ground game possible. >> i read yesterday, i think again it was nate silver who said that if romney was to lose ohio, he would have just a 3% chance of winning the election. conversely, if barack oba
. >> absolutely. especially those 18 electoral votes in ohio. ed, you're joining us from columbus, give me a check on the mood there. >> well, you know, i think the poll you guys just put out confirms that the president is ahead here, and the fact that the gap appears to be widening ever so slightly, at least in your survey, is telling. i think a lot of this is, you know, the fact that they believe that, you know, he saved the auto industry or at least has campaigned on that. remember you can't make a car in michigan unless you have the parts made in ohio. i think a lot of people here appreciate that realization that the president really and his administration have done what they did. another thing to keep in mind about ohio, i saw this vividly a few weeks ago when i was here, the obama campaign never left ohio. and you talk to their people, you talk to their volunteers on the ground, and they say, we've been doing this now for five years in a sense. almost six years. you go to the cleveland suburbs, there are obama campaign offices just two doors down from where they were four years ago. and the
